The Jamie Oliver Good School Food Awards celebrate the sheer brilliance, ingenuity and determination of those working in the education system to bring good food to our children.

Do you know a special person or a brilliant primary, secondary, pre-school or nursery that deserves one of our awards?

The Awards

The first Golden Spoons will be officially presented at the end of the academic year in summer 2023.

You can choose to apply or nominate for one or more categories.

The Golden Spoons

Everyone will win a Golden Spoon trophy, which they can proudly display in their school, showing their devotion to the foodie cause.

To recognise the incredible winners, we’ve got some money-can’t-buy prizes, too, from books to kit out a school library to celebrity cooking classes.

We need to show big love to the food educators, teachers and catering teams that work so hard 190 days a year to feed our kids
and teach them about the joy of food.

Jamie Oliver, December 2022.


Our judges are a very special group of people, who understand and are passionate about making sure our kids are being fed well at school…
